I had a friend in Santa Cruz who marketed a device called the MidiNome
that did exactly that. What was cool is that it was large and had a
circle of LEDs that would sweep
across so you could see when it was going to be right on the beat a little
ahead of time.
It was great but he asked too much for what the market would bear and they
went out of production.
I had an endorsement with him for a while, but one day he called me and
asked for it back...........damn!!!!
Bjork also use a similar device in her latest concert..........it had a
display and was up high so that all
the 10 members of her all woman's vocal choir/brass horn section could see
the conducting: important as they were all
playing to glitchy laptop musicians who had control of the rhythm tracks.
